CATCH YOU LATER, TRAITOR, by Avi

traitor

The story: When his teacher says that Pete’s dad is a Communist, Pete hardly even knows what that means. But as his friends drop him like a hot potato, Pete decides to figure out if it’s true–and if it is, how did the FBI find out about it? And can they really come around and bug you until you rat out your own father? Pete knows he didn’t do it, but he also knows someone close to them did…now he has to find out who, even as he’s finding out the truth about his family’s past, and how it just might mess up his very own present.

Mrs. Friend’s opinion: Here’s a fun, fast-moving historical mystery.  It didn’t happen very long again, but I’ll bet you’ve never heard about this time in American history.  Check it out!
